two previous books.
It's a decent read, and it contains a little more background info from both Jason and Grant.
Does anyone remember the Jason Hawes of season one? He was a total skeptic who refused to use psychics in
their investigations, and refused to even say the word haunted.
Now, apparently, he is claiming to have supernatural visions that go away when he eats green olives. That's
quite a leap. Which do we believe?

As mentioned in the blurb, the book is an omnibus edition, combining two earlier books. The first book, Ghost Hunting, gives a brief history of the T.A.P.S. the organization that the ghost hunters work for and then we get chats of 42 cases from the early years.

Jason Hawes has a light, clear, friendly writing style, like he's talking with you over a beer or coffee. The written case files recap the episodes but also show us their thought processes and reasons for taking or refusing a case.

My favorite part of the book was the chapter titled "Ghost Hunters Manual". Jason and Grant provide tips that will either surprise or shock you such as working in pairs. Yes.

Jason and Grant's enthusiasm about their love of ghost hunting is prevalent throughout the book and makes for a great story for any science fiction lover or anyone who has watched the show or perhaps one with a curiosity for ghost hunting.
